I really wanted to just show you all Sally Hansen DVD, a brilliant glitter top coat that looks different depending on the light:
It's a sheer blue glitter polish that reflects a gorgeous purple depending on the angle and lighting. To give an example:
Flash drowns out the purple but under lamp light it is more obvious.
Because the polish is so sheer, I added one base coat of Essie's Coat Azure and just one coat of DVD. Flash shot above.
Without flash shown above. See the pretty purple @_@
I also wanted to trying layering over black and white compared to just wearing DVD on a bare nail.
A black base really seems to transform this colour into something else. On its own however it is comparable to having a white base. But you need quite a few coats since it is so sheer.
Back to the UFO nail art! A simple design with a few tiny pink gems added for decoration at the end. Essie's Coat Azure made a nice opaque base even at one coat. The outline was drawn in China Glaze Snow and filled with MAC Ice Cream Cake. Still loving this pink.
Progress shot above. I was going to stop here but I thought, this needs pink :-D
To be honest I don't know why I drew them so wonky and at that angle. It was easier I guess!

Thumb swatch above. I decided to finish the design with some little pink gems. It just gave it that extra cuteness. Well I hope you enjoyed the swatches and let me know if you've tried any of the HD range, I know there are some gorgeous colours out there! Hope you all had a lovely week and I'll see you next time :-)
